Hey guys! Look at me, posting and stuff. I’m impressed. (You should be too.) So as you can tell from the picture above is that I’m doing something new because When We Met is slowly coming to an end. So this isn’t a story but it’s a look at some of my characters for my new novel that I’m planning on writing in January/February. I spend a lot (a lot, a lot) of time on character work and I usually don’t plot because characters are enough for me.
Anyway, my new book is about (don’t steal my ideas that’s #rude) this group of teenagers that have been forgotten by the world and have nowhere to go. This government-run alb takes them and feeds them lies to build trust between them. The lab then uses the kids as lab rats for their experiments. The kids soon develop certain powers that are based off much of their personality. Each kid can control a certain emotion in other people. But the only downside is that they often apply that power to themselves without realizing. So the story is kinda just about these teenagers figuring out what to do with the powers.
It’s a half-baked idea and still in progress but the characters are dialed in and I thought I would share. So let’s get started.
She’s tough. And she knows it. And she’ll make sure you know it. She’s kinda the leader of the six teenagers that the novel focuses on. She is commanding and powerful and completely stubborn. Her emotion is anger and she loves using it, loves watching the chaos that ensues afterward. For her, living is your heart racing and people obeying you. her motives are often questionable but they all trust her. Because she’s had reason to be trusted.
She likes to box or just fight in general. She’s usually always bruised or cut or broken somewhere if not multiple places.
She’s also the getaway driver for the group and her road rage is like nothing else. And she tends to see the road signs as helpful suggestions.
She spends a lot of times reading conspiracy theories on the internet and everyone makes fun of her for it but she refuses to not believe them.
Liam’s Thoughts on Her: (Her and Liam have been dating for a while but neither of them ever really acknowledge the fact that they’re dating) ((He’s another teenager in the group of six))
She is made of sunlight that hurts your eyes and wind that blows papers out of your hand. She is made of poisonous berries with bright red juice and thunderstorms that shake the house.
But. She is also made of new beginnings and promises you can keep. She is made of the gentle murmurings of twilight and an owls ominous hoot. She is made of so made things it is impossible to name them all. She is a contridiciton to herself. But a beautiful one.
A contradiction that painters could spend centuries trying to capture and poets trying to express. But they never would be able to. Because I’ve spent years trying. And I haven’t even come close And I most likely never will.
So that’s about it. It’s super short and I apologize for that but I hope you enjoyed. I’m going to try and post one of these every Monday if I can. Have a nice night and stay tuned for more characters. Love you guys!
